March and April are big months in the ongoing effort for women’s rights. In March, we took time to recognize generations of women innovators and advocates as we celebrated Women’s History Month as a nation.
And in April, Connecticut follows, with the Women’s Business Development Council (WBDC) hosting the annual tradition of Women-Owned Business Day — an opportunity to celebrate and share the economic impact of the thousands of women owned enterprises in the state.
In the waning days of a pandemic that caused an economic downturn, which many market analysts are describing as a “she-cession,” it is more important than ever to raise the awareness of our elected leaders about the important work of WBDC and its 24-year-long effort to make economic equality for all women a priority.
